Attend the RNCM Festival of Brass next January and you will have your answer (it's 'no').
There will certainly be a lot of fine bands there.
Well.. Stavanger are certainly good, but not sure about a 'class of their own'. Or was that not who you meant?
Surely he was referring to the Grimley Colliery Band!
Before they changed their names, I suppose Coventry School of Music and Birmingham School of music bands could have been said to be in a class of their own.
Grimley Colliery.......the "fictional" band in Brassed Off! The only band to feature in a major motion picture......that surely qualifies them as being in a class of their own.
Grimethorpe were in a class of their own at Brass in Concert. Best principal cornet, best soprano, best basses and best quality of performance. To be fair Cory played very well and were only 3 points behind in quality.
Going by Peter's logic (I realise you were joking), The Ohio State University Marching Band (modeled after the British brass band) is in a class of it's own.
How many bands have been hired, fully sponsored (with per diem) for any overseas trip?
